Apple has launched a new series of videos to help schools and educators use their Apple devices for remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has shut down schools and colleges across the U.S. and other countries, leading many of them to switch to remote and online learning.

To help out with that initiative, Apple is creating a new video series hosted on IBM's website that will walk educators and teachers through some of the relevant built-in features of their Apple devices.

There are currently two videos available in the series, "Prepare Resources for Remote Learning" and "Create and Share Presentations and Demos." They'll cover topics ranging from scanning documents with an iPad to using Apple's tablet for Keynote presentations.

The Apple Education Leadership and Learning teams, which are spearheading the project, say that there are more videos to come.

Additionally, Apple says educators will be able to participate in 30-minute virtual conferences with Apple Professional Learning Specialists. A schedule of conferences and events in specific time zones is available here.

Apple also recently updated its remote learning and device management advice to help educators and schools set up and maintain systems for remote education.
